NATO installations in their countries...

(Some NATO big-wig was whingeing about the Russkis ratcheting up the tension with intrusive fights in informally sacrosanct airspace).

Didn't they offer some of the Guatemalan Indian males the choice of being baked alive in an oven or castrated? The renamed School of the Americas will be back in business. Education was always high on the list of priorities of US administrations, especially of foreigners.
